This hotel is gorgeous. They renovated it a year ago and the entire thing is very nice and clean. The Tuckasegee river out back is gorgeous. We had breakfast while watching a fly fisherman. The rafting trips (that we were there for) go right by the hotel. People on the Tuckasegee are so friendly. The breakfast is great - waffles,... More

All of the Hotel staff were friendly and helpful at this hotel, but one individual stood out from the rest - her name is 'Season'. Very good 'energy' coming from this staff - well run. The only thing I would change is I would prefer to have fresh eggs, and I suspect that the scrambled and omelets we had were... More

Very nice place with river views. Watch the waterfowl swim and listen to the wonderful sound of the river from your balcony. This hotel has been updated. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. The hotel is very quiet and there is a good, free breakfast. You are right in the midst of the Smokies, close to Cherokee and... More

My work travel takes me to Dillsboro, NC every few years and I always stay here. I especially love the view of the Tuckasegee River from the back terrace while enjoying my breakfast - this sets it apart from other lodging choices in the area for me. The staff are especially attentive and the place has recently been remolded too.... More

We stayed here to get away for a few days. This hotel is on the river, and we got a room on that side. We sat on our balcony and soaked in the wonderful scenery complete with kayakers, tubers, and fly fishermen and women. For those that aren't staying directly on the river, there is a large deck overlooking the... More

We had stayed here years ago when the hotel first opened and were a little apprehensive about whether the hotel was up to date. No worries - rooms were very spacious, the river view was fantastic. Good location, on the way to Cherokee or the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is worth the extra for the river view.

I was very pleased with this hotel. Only feedback is that most of the fitness equipment was broken so I couldn't exercise during my stay. The location is great. On the river with incredible views. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. Staff is very nice and helpful. They make it a great place.

We have stayed here over twenty times in the last fifteen years. The hotel is on the banks of the Tuckasegee River in quaint Dillsboro, NC. Small, always clean, recently updated, with friendly staff. In hotel complimentary breakfast is convenient before beginning an outdoor, mountain day.

We have stayed at this Best Western PLUS River Escape Inn and Suites in the beautiful mountain town of Dillsboro, NC several times, and we absolutely love it!! We always request a Riverside Room because it overlooks a beautiful, relaxing mountain river, where you can watch people tubing and canoeing. The complimentary breakfast is always fresh and delicious, and the... More

Very nice place to stay. We were last minute with finding a hotel and had just had a bad experience some where else. Checked in Best Western and were relieved to find a very good hotel room. Best Western in Dillsboro, Nc.
